The Junior World Wrestling Championship has started in Zagreb, Croatia.

Our Greco-Roman wrestlers joined the competition on the first day of the championship and completed the day with 3 gold medals. Thanks to Ibrahim Nurullayev (50 kg), Elman Mukhtarov (60 kg) and OrkhanNuriyev (96 kg) our national anthem was played thrice in Zagreb on the first tournament day.

Moreover Ibrahim Nurullayev (50 kg) and Elman Mukhtarov’s (60 kg) victories were especially important for our team, because they both scored confident victories against their Armenian rivals – Nurullayev in his first bout and Mukhtarov in his final match.

Our wrestlers shared their views after the final matches and said they dedicated these victories to our military martyrs who died during the latest DaghligKarabakh events:

‘We showed what we are capable of on the mat as wrestlers today. We understand the responsibility that lies upon our shoulders and we won against all our rivals and especially gave no chances to our Armenian competitors. We are all soldiers of the Commander-in-Chief, the head of state and President of the National Olympic Committee, Mr. Ilham Aliyev. And we are also ready to win against our enemies holding guns in our hands on the frontline should our Commander-in-Chief order so!’
